i recently discovered that my cd and cdrw drive no longer work. i went through some basic troubleshooting i.e. uninstalled and reinstalled both drives and there drivers( i also physically disconnected and reconnected them both, still same messages), tried upgrading drivers. even plugged my cd drive into secondary plug on the "ribbon" my hard drive is on. still get the following messages:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) also, after reinstalling them I get: there was a problem installing your hardware it may not work properly...does anyone have any more suggestions........p.s. when i disonnected and reconnected them to the motherboard, windows does see them and tries to install them.

I been getting some help from another forum user on the 'Am I infected' pages and have been directed to post my problem here.
 
Basically, an official looking Australia Post email was sent to me notifying of a parcel to be collected at the local post office and I needed to get a consignment doc to pick it up. As we receive many parcels, we did not think anything of it.
 
So realising it was potentially a virus, I posted in 'Am I infected' to be find out and remove. There did not seem to be any issues, but a week later a whole heap of warning windows suddenly popped up and since then I have been unable to use firefox and ie.

Hi everyone,

Starting yesterday, my accent and quotation keys dont work anymore. The keys that dont work anymore are:

- Key left of 1/! (both ` and ~ dont work)
- Key 6 (6 works, but ^ doesnt)
- Key left of :/; (both ‘/’ and " dont work)

As you can see, sometimes the symbols work, but only in text editors, like notepad or word, but its a pain having to keep a notepad file with all these symbols opened at all time, and copying and pasting. Also, I cant make any accented letters, which I also need a text editor for.

First, I only noticed the " key, and later the `/~ key and finally the ^ symbol. When I thought about it, all these symbols are used to create accented letters (?, ?, ?, ?, ?).

I checked around the internet, but Im pretty sure my problem is unique. I found similar problems on other threads (not this site), but never the same as mine.

If you know how to solve this, please leave a reply.

Thanks!

Out of nowhere!
I first noticed my Blackberry wasnt syncronizing automatically as it used to, after I upgraded to BB 6.0. I tried the portable HDD which didnt do anything and no flashdrives were regognized.
I tried to uninstall BB6.0 (unsuccessfuly) It froze. Just coulndt do it.
When trying to install BB5.1 from a CD, it didnt want to autorun, although the CD was turning.
I followed a thread to get the DVD working by toggling the autorun option and installed BB 5.1. I couldnt sync, though as none of the USB is working. Stragely my logitech mouse works. It seems that if a device is connected in the USB before I start up the machine it works OK, when inserted after start-up it doesnt work.
I have tried MS Fix it for hardware devices and it has been running for 4 hrs "resolving" problems. I suspect its not working.
What can I do?
(Win 7 does not shut down normally when I have connected to the office network. For some reason it "shutting down" never does. On the home network it shuts down normally)

ok, so the other day i was surfering the web and zone alarm showed up and it said something along the lines of .dll i forget the name because it was a really long one, anyway i accidently hit ok. and i guess it installed or deleted the .dll, so i panicked and shut down my internet access, and ran a few virus programs which were spybot search & destroy, and avg. i restarted my computer and my background actually said my computer was infected, and i needed to install an anti-virus.. so i restored my computer to earlier this month. this had little affect (my background turned back to the original one)i notice the main problem when i start my computer, it takes a good 3-7 minutes to load.. and thats saying if it shows the start bar and icons.. when it dosnt i have to hit ctrl-alt-del > go to run and try and open a folder.. this forces the start bar and icons show. also, im a frequant firefox user, and once this .dll got changed firefox wont open certain pages such as gmail, neither would IE.. i was able to update both programs (firefox 3, IE7) but still the same. i discovered however that the most recent version of netscape works perfectly and loads all of my pages.

The way i connect to my XP network is i open explorer and click on the Network folder icon. Then i wait for the green search bar to do it's thing at the top of the screen and when it detects the XP computer, it will show XP under Network and i can access it.

Well it stopped. No matter how many times I clicked on Network the green search bar only searched once after a reboot and it would not find the XP drive.

After searching I found that you could open the drive by typing in the start menu's search bar, \\NAME. This worked fine, so I am able to access the drive but why don't it work with the Network folder in Explorer anymore?

After I open the xp drive this way, it will then magically pop up under the Network folder but not before.

Also is there a way to create a shortcut to this drive? I don't see that option by right clicking on it.

A:XP dont show in network anymore but will work with \\NAME

Hi Electric Driver,

You may map a network drive first then send the shortcut from your My computer to your Desktop.

Hi guys,

i have a problem. I switched my Soundblaster X-FI Titanium from its PCI-E 3.0 1x slot to the last PCI-E Slot on my Motherboard, which is a PCI-E 2.0 16x (which can according to literature operate in X1 or X4 Mode) Slot on the ASUS Z87 Pro.

The Lowest Slot (before it was in the 2nd from the bottom)


The reason I did that is because I want to add another Soundcard, which otherwise would be too close to my GEFORCE GTX 770 and would compromise the airflow.

So, as I said, I switched the Slots. Now I have problem making it work. Does it mean I have to reinstall the Creative Drivers again ? Because some of the Applications like the Konsole Starter and Creative Sound Panel etc. wouldn't recognize the card at the new PCI-E slot anymore.

I could still listen to music when I choose the Soundcard in my Media Player (now marked 2-Creative Soundblaster instead of formerly just Creative Soundblaster). Is that a general problem that was to be expected or is something else going wrong here ?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Wolfseye

A:Soundblaster dont work anymore after switch PCI-E Slot

UPDATE:

I reinstalled all Drivers etc from the Soundblaster Titanium. I can now choose the Card in Players such as Winamp or AIMP3 and enjoy the sound on my 5.1 Headphones. However, using it for any other Systemsound like the Browser with Youtube, i will only hear Bass Sounds in my Headphones. In settings from Creative, where I can choose the Bass Boost (Crossover Frequency), when having Systemsounds like in a Browser, when I have that activated (as I said) i only head Bass sounds. When I disable Bass boost (Crossover Frequency), i hear nothing. But when I click it again, for a millisecond I hear the normal sound again. But only for a millisecond.

Whats that issue ? Just because I switched the PCI-E slots for the card ? Really need help ! Thanks in advance.

I've already asked this on two other forums, no one can give me a straight answer...here goes:

Whenever I play a game for more than 10 minutes, it locks up and I have to reboot my PC. Even after I reboot, it still occurs every single time. Also, if I want my games to run smooth, I have to run them as soon as I boot up the PC or else the frame rate goes to hell. I have all the latest drivers for my vid/sound card and XP. Defragged around 2 days ago.

The 2nd problem happened long before the first but I didn't think much of it...

I really have no clue what's wrong. Any ideas?

My specs:

AMD Athlon 2100+
512mb RAM
60gig HD
Radeon 9000 Pro 128mb
Sound Blaster Audigy

I have a Sound max 1980 integrated sound card. I can get true dolby digital and DTS in my dvds!!! YAY! But when it comes to games EAX sounds like crapp and no surround capabilities, the center channel works. Now whats the deal with EAX?? Is that the same as Dolby Digital or is it a knock off? My external reciever is a Aiwa 5.1 and is using the spdif/coax input. The sound card had a Spdif output. And yes,,i know what ur going to ask, I have the 5.1 surround option selected in sound settings. The digital icon shows when im playing a dvd,,but for games, it registers as analog. I though the sound card was digital or are todays game really not putting out a digital eax/dolby 5.1 output?
 

A:eax or dolby digital omg.....they dont work in my games

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I am pretty sure you will have to have an nVidia motherboard incorporating SoundStorm audio, in order to get 5.1 digital sound from games. Also, please be aware that not all games use digital 5.1 sound, only some of the newer games, such as Unreal II. But you should have no trouble with DVD's getting 5.1, as you said.

As far as EAX, it is not digital 5.1. And if you use it in games that are not encoded for EAX, in my opinion, it does not sound to great at all. But a lot of games ARE encoded with EAX and it adds a lot to the gameing experience if not used in excess. I suggest you go to EAXgaming, and read about it. That page will explain EAX and give you some tests to try out, that will show you the different effects and what they do. Also, it will give you a list of EAX games.

Is flash installed on their accounts, and does it have admin rights there? You can run the flashplayer "as admin" without giving them admin rights

Hi everyone,A few days ago, I suddenly couldn't update AVG anymore. It always gives me an error, telling me the connection with the server failed. I also noticed that I can't connect Limewire (P2P program) anymore and opening movie streams in Windows Media Player doesn't work anymore either.I searched some forums for a solution and I found someone with a similar problem, who also told he couldn't execute the "cmd" and "regedit" commands anymore. I tried it on my own computer and I can't run those things anymore either. When I try executing them, the explorer goes all weird and shuffles the program bars on the task bar.I've manually downloaded the latest updates for AVG, installed them and did a full scan, that didn't find a thing. I also ran AdAware, which said I had some malware, which I removed with it. Then I also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which found some more malware, so I removed it, rebooted my pc, but the problems still exist...I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem, because it's really anoying...Here's my HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:37:26, on 11/05/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\At...

I have Altec Lansing speakers and the volume has decreased alot, i checked everything on volume controls. The speakers got low overnight i believe. I found out that it is the speakers, I've tried it on different systems, they are about 3 years old. What can I do?
 

A:Speakers dont go as loud anymore

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

We need to know if this is a speaker problem or a sound card problem.

Can you try your speakers on another system and see if you get the same results?

Failing that, try another set of speakers on your system and see what the results are.

Please let us know the outcome.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 (M5030) and it has three USB ports. Two right next to each other and one closer to the front of the laptop. One day I was just using my laptop and ejected then unplugged my external hard drive.

Ever since then the two USB ports right next to each other wont work at all but the single one works perfectly fine. The two non-working ports dont recognize devices that work on the working port nor do they provide any power to any devices whatsoever.

Ive searched and searched and have tried these things: uninstalling the USB controllers in the Device Manager and restarting multiple times. Ive tried a complete system restore. Ive updated the BIOS via the Dell website.

I dont know what to do and its extremely inconvenient having only one USB port... The USB hub i have is working but when i plug certain things in it causes other devices to freak out.

Hello Lara0101,I see you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.

To the best of my knowledge, the UAC (User Account Control) can not be selectively changed to allow some programs to run and not others. It's a built in security feature of Vista. While not recommended, the UAC can be disabled. I would recommend leaving it on, but if you want to try running your system with it disabled, you can find the instructions here: User Account Control (UAC)

Let us know how this works out for you.

Here i am again, complaining about my system..
As my previous topics, this one i think is more serious as i cant boot nor open up advance boot options(f8 dont work). As soon the manufacturers logo show off, an error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del to resatrt." It remains unless i press shutdown. Power on and it still shows the same.
 
I havent finished the download of the iso(to be used as a recovery method) thats why i opt for another way which is to recover a backup copy of my registry(which iv done by manually exporting it).  However, i have encrypted it before with my administrative user account. Now, im not able to decrypt it via cipher or keys as if i run: "cipher /c thatfilename.reg" it informs me that only the user(my account) and certificate thumbprint can decrypt it. No found backup certificate or keys. Bad for me i dont know how to recover it via the certificate thumprint....
 
My last option that i try is use EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard, which i have googled about tools that can decrypt files...
Glad it runs even im only using the recovery console. I installed it on my memory card(as my pc can still detect it). Im new to this tool and still dont know what should i click on for a spedific purpose. But i have tried the partition recovery, since im thinking that maybe it could still detect missing/lost files on the drive by which windows is installed..  It search then rebuild directories for more than 4 hours. remaining time is already at 00:...

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try.  This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems.  I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted.  Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption.  In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.

About a few months ago I can still play games like Combat Arms, Call of Duty 4, BioShock, and Dead Space at minimal performance. But now, I reinstalled the game to play it again and it just got stuck on the Starting Screen or just plain BLACK Screen! I can still play some MMORPG like Sword of the New World: Granado Espada or the recently Closed-Beta, Luna Online just fine. I don't know what I did wrong with my Dell XPS Laptop.

A:I can't play my games anymore!?

The only thing I noticed with Vista and games is sometimes a game will load and you get to a black menu screen for the game. I play Silent Hunter 4 and the first time I loaded the game in Vista I had not issues at all. Me being me messed up how to handle admin account and user account so I did a clean install to start over. Once done I loaded Silent Hunter 4 again to play. No issues, loaded fine. I clicked to play and I got the load screen. Once I got to the menu of the game it was nothing but a black screen. I could hear the music and see my mouse cursor but nothing else. So, what I had to do was go to my videocard tweak program ( I just use the one offered by Nvidia, it works fine) and reset my video card to all the default values. Should be just a box to check and apply to reset to defaults. Once done, I ran the game and all was fine. I closed the game out and reset my videocard back up to the tweaks I like. My game ran fine every since. Give it a shot, it worked for me.

I think I am in the right place but if this thread should be in another spot let me know.

I bought a computer a while ago and because it has a GeForce 7800 GS video card it sadly has the infinite loop problem. I managed to fix the Blue Screen of Death errors this problem causes when I downloaded the latest drivers for my card. I haven't had the crash problem since, but still have video rendering problems when I play some games like Battlefield 2 for instance what happens is the environment goes all screwy, I see a checkerboard type map on the ground or the image of the gun I am holding has odd triangle shapes coming off it or when I get into a vehicle the view is all triangles and flashing object or the other characters in the game look all sparkly and seem to be made up of odd triangle shapes. The only way to fix this is to reboot the system closing the game and starting it again doesn't work. Anywho the main reason I am here is because since I updated the video drivers ( I don't know what they were before or if this is the real reason for the problem) or because of something else other than the driver update, I can't say for sure as I didn't notice the problem right away because I didn't start the affected games for quite some time after the fact. I can still play COD4 but COD5, COD6, and Black Ops all fail to work and close down before they start COD6 actually stutters at the menu screen and I have to shut the system down by pulling the plug....

Guys you won't believe it.

I reinstalled Vista yesterday because of this issue and also my games.
Yesterday everything worked.
Today I installed my applications and extra drivers and I started Racedriver GRID and it did the same thing.
So since its a new Vista install I checked what I installed today and removed the Windows Visual C and my Genius Fpen 610 driver.
Reboot and magically Grid and all my games started.

My Genius F610 Tablet driver for Vista was causing all the trouble!!!!
Can you believe that?

Thanks for everyones help!

Hello

After I ran registry mechanic and defragged my hard drive (perfect disk - thrice, although I stopped the defrag half way through), none of the latest games work anymore (Call of duty 4, Crysis demo, Bioshock), although older games like Heroes of might and magic 3 still runs fine. Whenever I click to start a game, the splash screen will start, the screen will go black like when one normally starts a game, and then I'm just back at the desktop, with no error message. All other software works fine, like Ableton Live 5 etc.

I should also say that before all of this I decided to clean up my hard drive and deleted some files mainly in C:\documents and settings\bernhard\local settings\temp. I did not delete any read-only files. Maybe this screwed it up?

It's strange because everything works fine except these games all of a sudden.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey guys I have AT&T "High-Speed" Internet DSL. I used to be able to host games and such when I was directly connected to the modem and nobody would lagg, and I would never lagg in games. Anyways, now I bought a linksys wrt54gl because I needed internet for myself and other people here at home. Well I tried the best I could, and I can join games (I play Borderlands and CS:Source and Team Fortress 2) but I can't host. When I host, my friends can't join, they used to be able to join me with no lagg... now they can't even join me.

I've tried port forwarding, disabling DMZ, removing the router firewall, tons of stuff. I can't get it to work, and I need to be able to host games again because I have the fastest internet.

Please help me out, I'm a newcomer and not too Tech Savvy but I'm not stupid either.

Thanks guys at Tech Support Guy Forums,
Andy

just for troubleshooting, put your computer in the DMZ (must have manual IP address). What the DMZ will do is route any traffic to that computer without any issues/port blocks etc.

At least 2 old games gothic 1 and gothic 2 ( raven ). Both played well on my winXP 64-bit. I reinstalled them both. Gothic 1 has no images in intro, and the sound is very spotty. Gothic 2 also has no intro images and even stopped in the middle of intro.

It is the same computer, except some more games. The computer is virtually not connected to internet except when I need a patch. What could be the reason?

one year old gaming computer
winXP pro 64-bit service pack 2
AMD phenom II X4 955
3.21 ghz 8 gig RAM
radeon HD 4870 X2 2gig video RAM
BTW, the DVDs come from " gothic universal " which includes 3 DVDs ( No1 is gothic 1, No2 is gothic 2 and No3 is gothic 3 ). No3 which is gothic 3 works fine so I have no reason to think that the other two DVDs do not work because they are dusty or scratched. Most other games played well including both old and recent games.

But I put in a movie and it's like there's no disc here. We've watched movies on it for over a year, so I checked multiple movies that once worked. I've followed the troubleshooting, tried to update driver. The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. Oh, and if it helps we have Windows XP Media Center Edition. This stumps me. I read somewhere "Security Update for Windows Media Player 6.4 (KB925398)" was a problem but I even went to add/remove programs and couldn't find that paticular update, so I couldn't uninstall that.

Hi Guys,

I just bought a new PC. It is an absolute beast of a machine, but i'm having problems with it just now.

I'm trying to play some of the high standard games (ie. Half-Life2, Doom3, MoHA) to see how good it really is and the game starts sticking and starting after 15 seconds then 10 secs later it sticks again.

The computer is a XPC SN95G5 (Cubix). The spec is:

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+
2.21GHz
1.00GB of Ram
GeForce 6800 GT 256MB

So it should play these games without a problem.
I downloaded the 64 bit Version of Far Cry from the Ubisoft Website(The original version I have sticks too) and when I try to install it I get a message saying "This is an AMD64 exclusive 64 bit setup". I have a 64 bit PC.

Any help or explanation would be greatly appreciated. I will also donate very soon.

I have had the ability to play older games. I speculate that after installing SP2 on the x64 you lose the ability to install/play older x86 games. I cant play my MechWarrior 4 anymore and it has me annoyed. I also assume at times...even though sounds stupid..that newer hardware is just too high end for older games that they cant be installed on them. I know its silly but possible. Just keep trying in compatibility mold all the way back to windows 2000/xp settings and try it out more. It might just work if it feels like it.

Hi, I have a computer with hardware capable of running almost all current titles, EG Bf3, Dota2, counter strike GO, that was until a few months ago.
I started experiencing serious ping issues / packet loss in games causing me to completely freeze, then re-appear where I would have been. On counter strike source "string_cmds" graph peaks when this occurs.
The problem has got worse now, though, I can't play more then 10 minutes of ANY game before something goes wrong, be it a game crash or my whole computer shuts down resulting in one of the many Blue screen Stop errors I have said.
The game will run perfectly smooth, then suddenly my whole computer will shut down. This can happen about 5 times a day depending on how willing I am to restart the game.
Google chrome has just started to crash frequently now, too, and with limited income being 16 I need to fix this rather buy a new pc.
I don't know whether this will be useful but the address for one of them ( I've had well over 100 by now) Is "at FFFFF8801047D000" and another.." STOP: 0x00000019"

A:Multiple BSODs - 3B, 7e, 10, 50, can't play games anymore

Welcome to SevenForums,

I have had a look at your last 3 DMP Files, 2 of them are referencing memory.

Can you try these steps for me

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip
If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Have you updated your video drivers with the REAL drivers from the manufacturers website yet?

The built in drivers on install are woefully inadequate for playing most games.

Though are you talking about like games form the app store? Or general PC games like Diablo/WoW/Skyrim etc?

I've been searching for a solution but all i can find is update your graphics card / DirectX / install the Dx in the game folder itself, all of which i did, but none of it worked.


I've tried pretty much everything i could find about this problem, anyone have any ideas? Only difference is i am running all of this off a laptop with an intergrated graphics card though, and for the next few months my laptop is all i have in terms of a pc. Graphics card is Intel HD graphics 4600, which worked just fine a day ago.

A:Failed to create graphics device. Can't run games anymore

Welcome to the forum!

You are certain you have only HD 4600 graphics and not also a discrete Nvidia graphics chip? Does device manager show only HD 4600 graphics adapter?

Would also help to know exact model like V3-772-xxxx.

Curious as to if there is a way to defrag large game files that seem to get skipped by the Windows 7 Defrag as well as Auslogics Defrag. The files are like 6GB or greater in size and it shows them as fragmented and I havent found a way yet to get them to not be fragmented. Tried uninstalling the game, defragmenting drive to collapse data to be more continuous, then reinstalling the game clean and I am right back to the same amount of fragmentation of 30% on a 164.7GB drive with the majority of the fragmentation being with the large game files of a 32GB game install, and other MMORPG games that consume 10GB to 25GB in size.*Maybe its just the nature of excessively large files that chunks of it are going to fill in the holes between other data segments on the platters, however it seems as though there should be a way to give it a continuous segment somewhere on the drive in the empty area skipping over the smaller gaps that cause it to fragment and cause the drive to have to sweep excessively or spin extra revolutions to wait for the data segment to come around again to read in since there is 36GB free on a 164.7GB drive?The only thing I havent done with this drive yet, which use to be a trick for better performance years ago was short stroking the drive by making a smaller partition special to an area for data to be located for a faster read. Quick look online it looks like there is a better method than just making a size blindly for the partition, but to test different sizes ... Read more

A:Games Files that are fragmented... how to defrag when they dont

Looking at battlenet was not much help. Decided to dig deeper to see if blizzard had any suggestions. I find it funny that their response was oblivious as to the fact that fragmentation hurts load time and data read performance. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2267488190Here was Blizzards response which i found funny and clueless about fragmentation:QuoteHi,I have heard the defrag is not allowed to move some wow files. To answer your question, no these are files that are important to the game and should not be deleted.If i may, what are you tying to accomplish with defrag?AndresMaybe I will go the path of short stroking it in its own partition on this drive for wow.  Then pick up a cheap SSD in near future on a sale and place the game onto that to be done with fragmentation issues and large games.

hi guys at the moment i have recently upgraded my pc to 2gb DDRII or ram and also installed a new 600W psu but still my games keep crashing on me for no apparant reason

they were doing this before i changed my ram and psu and they are stil crashing

can someone please help me
 

A:Games Keep Crashing And I Dont Know If It Is Hardware Failure Or Not

It almost has to be a hardware problem... if more than one game crashes.
But you have performed the common tasks that would normally fix it. Something in the original setup is obviously the cause.
Run the free Memtest86 to rule out memory. It must run for four hours or 7 passes, which ever is longer. If you are using memory with "Value" in the name or description, that could be the cause... or if your old, original memory is part of your upgrade, that is a clue.
If the memory tests ok, tell us more.
These problems are usually:
Video graphics card has problems. This is the most common cause.
Video graphics driver is bad, and needs to be replaced.
Hard drive is bad. Replacements are inexpensive, and you can always use an extra.
CPU heatsink is not connected firmly or thermal paste has dried up.
CPU fan is failing.
Power Supply is inadequate. Not all new ones are good.
Any defective component in a PCI slot can cause intermittent problems.

I have a windows xp media center addition. its a couple years old. 6800 graphics card. i think i have all the most recent drivers.Alright.

After that had happend i had some problems that were pretty minor and i fixed a majority of them. but there are still some things that i just cant figure out no matter how many hours i put into searching. The problems aree:1. When i right click on my desktop and go into properties, there are no tabs for the display properties window. It just comes up with the "theme" window but doesnt show any tabs. when i select a different theme then i can see all the tabs, but i dont know why they dont jsut show up the whole time.

My son has a Fujitsu Amilo laptop with a built in web cam.
Recently (much like my own cam on my Acer) it's just stopped working for no apparent reason.

The message he gets is that it can't connect.

Hope someone has a bright idea as I had no reply to my similar query. Now neither of us has a webcam.

Thanks everyone!

i am having a problem where IE and Chrome where flash games are really small on my screen,there is a grey or black box th right size around the game but the game screen itself is to small. the games also run extremely slow in loading times and FPS

A:Flash games dont scale properly and run slow/very low FPS

From the screenshot I see you're not using an ad blocker, so that's good. But low FPS and bad scaling of games probably means that you don't have Flash installed properly, especially since it doesn't work in more than one browser.

Go to Adobe and download then install Flash Square (64bit Flash) then try again. I recommend you do this from IE rather than Chrome, as installing flash from IE can also reflect on programs such as MSN (animated emoticons and stuff won't work until you install Flash, and in order to make it work [if you want] you need to install Flash from IE)

Here is my problem. I used my computer one morning, all was fine when I left for work...screen saver came on and all. When I got home, I moved the mouse around to try and disable the screen saver, nothing happened. Not the first time I've had that problem, so I turned the computer off, and when I turned it on again, and everytime since, I get a series of 6-8 beeps...then nothing. Nothing pops up on the monitor even though the computer is on. I've tried opening up the pc and making sure all the connections are tight, to which in my knowledge they are.

Does anyone know what my problem could be? Do I need to take it to a repair shop or what? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

After restarting, all my text on my desktop and everything seem to be minimized and couldn't read it but that problem was fixed easily with the font size text. The programs haven't been cooperationig. Much help appreciated. Thanks guys


Edit: Also I've tried downloading Spybot repeatedly and the window after the "save disk file" shows up, the window dissapears immediately....also no other program works as if the icons are only there but not the program literally.

Hi all;
I am going to assume that everyone is having trouble with floppy diskettes.
They used to work reliably (even from one machine to another), but since they have been more or less phased out I am unable to get any of them to work on any machine.

I have several 1.44M diskettes which I have attempted to format as system start-up disks so that I can run Hard Drive Mechanic.
I have tried all 3 diskettes that I have, and none of them will fomat.
If I take them to another machine, same thing.

It appears as though the manufacturers of floppy drives have colluded with the manufacturers of floppy diskettes to create a better market for CD devices.
Problem is, I am finding it rather bothersome to create bootable CD's.
The only way seems to be that you must first have a boot image on a 3.5" floppy! So how can I make a bootable CD when I can't get the image?

I have a USB flash drive and am trying to make it bootable, but not sure that my bios will allow booting from it.

The machine I want to work with is an older Dell Precision 330 wih bios version A09. I have not found an upgrade for that bios on Dell's site, but have not yet looked at the bios home site.

Thanks for any help/advice.

A:Why don't floppies work anymore?

No real problems here. But remember, floppy disks have a limited shelf life. If you are trying to use old floppy discs, they may be unreadable. This is because the ferrous oxide coating eventually falls off over time.

I have yet to run accoss a BIOS that won't let you use a floppy. Floppies are part of the core computing architecture dating back to the early days of computing.

In your case, you are using a USB floppy. This is not the same as a real floppy.
Your BIOS may not let you boot from a USB device depending how old your computer is.
